Writer Laura Dockrill's rhyming poem is a bold, brave shout-out for all those children who feel they don't fit in - offering reassurance that it's difference, not sameness, that makes us magnificent. Debut illustrator Ria Dastidar's collaged illustrations are a riot of colour on every single page.
For young readers age 5 and up.
Magnificent is part of the 10 Stories to Make a Difference collection: ten original illustrated stories for young readers, all inspired by the theme of Difference. The collection features a mix of well-known and emerging writers and illustrators, giving a platform to untold stories and diverse new voices. Proceeds from sales supports Pop Up's work in deprived schools, marginalised communities, and with talented aspiring and emerging writers and illustrators.
